As with fridges and freezers, washing machines today are rated between D and A+++ for energy efficiency. Washing machine ratings are worked out by looking at annual kilowatt hours used by the machine on both 40°C and 60°C cotton cycles.
Grundig energy efficient washing machines are A+++ rated, meaning they are among the most energy efficient on the market. Featuring SenseWash technology, they automatically select the most suitable wash for the amount of laundry in the drum. The large capacity of our washing machines allows you to fit more in each wash, cutting down the number of washes and saving you money on both energy and water bills.
Fridges and freezers are running constantly, making them the second biggest consumer of energy in the home (after central heating systems). Since 2012, all new refrigeration appliances must legally have a rating of A+ or higher. This is to ensure all new products are meeting the EU's energy efficiency guidelines, anything that falls below an A+ rating cannot be sold.
The energy consumption of fridges and freezers is calculated based on efficiency related to the size of the appliance. This is worked out through tests designed to simulate how the appliance will be used. The outside temperature during the test is set to 25°C, and the appliance is half filled with produce while energy efficiency is measured.
Our energy efficient fridges and freezers are designed with No Frost Technology. This ensures there is no ice build-up inside, so the freezer runs as efficiently as possible. A++ energy efficiency ratings ensure you'll save up to 40% on your energy bills compared to A rated products. We're proud recipients of Which? Best Buy Awards for a number of our refrigeration appliances, so you know you’re in good hands.
